The obvious difference with BFD3 is a. В significant overhaul of the interface, both The Model panel provides additional control on aspects such as damping and, for the toms, the amount of resonance. There is also a. В completely new core- audio library with five new kits, one of which is sampled in three versions based on sticks, brushes and mallets. This gives a. В total of 1.
Drums') plus 1. 00. MIDI grooves in a. В range of musical styles. In addition, there are a. В number of new features in terms of the performance options, some new articulations and improvements in the mixing/processing capabilities. AВ new lossless audio compression/decompression system also that means audio data takes up only 1/3 of the hard- drive space without any compromise in performance or audio quality. That said, the two versions can co- exist on the same system.
BFD3 can work in stand- alone mode or as a. В VST, AU, RTAS or AAX 6. You can purchase either a.
В boxed or downloadable version and choose between three levels of install (1. GB) depending upon your requirements and available disk space.
If you purchase the download version, be prepared for a. В bit of a. В wait whichever level of installation you go for; unless you are on super- fast fibre all that data is going to take some time to be delivered.
That said, once done, installation and authorisation is a. В very smooth process. If you're familiar with BFD2, the screenshots here will clearly illustrate just how different BFD3 looks. Gone are the old- school drum graphics The Key Map features are comprehensive and very flexible.
BFD2 and in comes a. В modern, crisp technical drawing and, as you browse over the kit image in the upper half of the display, an arrow rather helpfully points out which mixer channel belongs to the currently selected drum in the lower half of the display. This central area is also tabbed в. This is great if you want to see either more Mixer channels at the same time or want a.
В bigger area within which to view the Groove Editor. AВ similar 'expand/contract' switch is available within the Mixer panel. This allows you to toggle between two views: one where all the channels are shown including the multiple channels for the snare, kick and ambience mics, and a. В second where each of these multiple mics are folded down into a. В single channel (acting like an aux or group channel). The level of control possible в.
While you can adjust the level and tuning, the ability to control the bleed from the kick and snare and the absolute precision with which you can adjust how much each drum appears within each of the ambient mic channels and its dynamic response (the Loudness settings) is like a. В drum engineer's fantasy. The Model panel allows you to configure some of the engine's modelling options for damping, choking, cymbal swells and the tom resonance. For example, in a. В busy mix, one of my pet hates is ringing, resonant toms; in BFD3 you can pretty much dial that in or out to whatever degree you want via the Damping and Tom Resonance controls.
Equally, the Hi- hat Tighten controls allow you to specify just how tightly closed the 'closed' articulations actually are, going between snappy or flappy as required. Incidentally, BFD3 also introduces a. В new system for saving individual drums with all their associated Drum Editor, mixer and effects settings. The first three of these are obvious and straightforward (and, incidentally, stuffed full of features; this is a. В very well- specified mixing environment). The other key addition is a. В very flexible side- chain capability to some of the effects (for example, the Comp Bus and Noise Gate).
Equally, BFD3's compressor effects include a. В Mix (wet/dry) control that allows you to create parallel compression effects on a. В mono or stereo channel without the need to set up an additional aux channel. Overall, the suite of effects in BFD3 в.
It's a. В shame they can't be used outside of BFD. BFD3 is a. В deep and very powerful tool and it's difficult to give a.
В full sense of that depth in a. В concise review.
However, there are a. В few other technical features worth mentioning. For example, the Key Maps have undergone some substantial changes and, on the whole, IВ think these create a. В much more intuitive and flexible workflow. Incidentally, BFD3 makes it easy to work with MIDI drum kits and the automation system now features a. В well- implemented Learn mode for mapping MIDI controllers.
As noted above, BFD3's mixer is fully featured and provides plenty of scope for internal routing of audio. The instrument also includes multiple outputs; you can send separate BFD3 mic channels out to your DAW or via a. В suitable multi- channel audio interface if you wish. It's a. В shame they can't be used outside BFD3. BFD3 drum track as a.
В series of audio files, then the Export features are truly excellent, allowing you to specify exactly which channels are exported and their bit- depth. This saves a. В heap of work assigning the required channels to separate BFD3 outputs and the subsequent rendering that would be involved otherwise.
While IВ was initially quite surprised at just how different BFD3 looked from its predecessor, having used it over the review period, IВ think FXpansion have done a. В fabulous job in both the interface and technical overhaul. Don't get me wrong, I'm more than happy with the results IВ can get from BFD2 or competing products such as Superior Drummer 2 (which IВ regularly use in my own projects), but BFD3 moves things up a. В notch from what's gone before. The range of drum samples provided means that even with just the default kits, BFD3 can cover a. В huge range of acoustic drum kit styles and musical genres.
But what is really impressive is the combination of sound quality and the ease with which the characteristics of the kit can be adjusted and fine- tuned to exactly suit your needs. To repeat what IВ said earlier: add in the impressive collection of supplied grooves в. The bottom line here is that you can coax almost any acoustic drum sound you want out of BFD3 and control that sound in ways that most of us (well, those of us without a. В mega- studio at our disposal) could never hope to replicate in our own recording spaces. Despite my initial surprise at the radical new look, IВ think BFD3 is a. В bit of a. В gem. IВ suspect BFD2 users, who might be hesitant about what appear to be wholesale changes, will actually be pleasantly surprised.
As a. В regular BFD2 user myself, IВ can honestly say that I'm not going back. What about those who haven't yet ventured into the world of top- notch virtual drum instruments but have a. В need for great- sounding acoustic drum tracks? Well, if you have a. В studio where you can record a.
В drum kit better than BFD3 sounds, then the price of BFD3 is going to be chump- change anyway. However, for the rest of us, BFD3 is a. В cost- effective and creative solution to what can be a. В real recording problem. Highly recommended. В В When it comes to upmarket virtual drum instruments, there are a.
В number of alternatives to BFD3, such as Superior Drummer 2, XLN Addictive Drums and NI Battery, although you might also consider the somewhat different approach offered by Drum Core. Of these, perhaps the most obvious comparison в.
This is slightly less expensive than BFD3 but also ships with a. В smaller core sample library. Both, however, are excellent products. As well as the Groove Browser now being rolled into the tabbed Browser area, the Groove Editor has received a. В BFD3 makeover. And while the intricate sampling and powerful drum- mixing features might get the headlines, for lots of potential users в. Cosmetics aside, the functionality will be familiar to existing users, aside from perhaps the new Paint tool, which replaces the Roll tool, and allows for a. В wider range of performance options to be easily drawn into the Editor.
As before, BFD3's groove editing, chaining of grooves, drag- and- drop to a. В DAW host and humanisation elements are first class.
